The Newness of it All

The air is always too thick around here during the rush of activity during back to school week.  It’s too humid, too warm still and so many leftover memories from Summer makes you wish we had another few weeks to lie on the beach.  All good things should be cherished, remembered and eventually have to come to an end.  Today marks the first day of school for some.  That first day is always filled with anxiety especially if they are taking the bus for the first time.  New friends, new teachers, and new challenges that will shape them through the year and teach them growth.

With the ease that popular culture has in reaching our youth today (and some adults), I think it is important to remember that during our time of growth, we remember to keep our feet firmly on the ground and remember what is important.

Put God first and pray each day.

I don’t believe in shoving God or religion down anyone’s throat because it defeats the entire purpose.  Just know that in times of trouble and especially since this is a new start for so many of you, prayer can move mountains and calm seas (literally and figuratively actually).  If you struggle with accepting that, I completely understand.  There are so many things in life that make us question everything.  What is real?  Why is my life the way it is?   Why can’t I find that answer on Google?  Start slow, study often and let the word come to you.  Take that with you this year and as you grow older.  Empower yourself through faith not fear.

I encourage you to do well in all aspects and remember that roadblocks are keys to finding success.  I’m sure this year will fly by and what will you have to show for it?
